What is a Block Pull?
A block pull is a deadlift variation where the barbell starts elevated off the ground. This allows the lifter to focus on the top-end range of motion of the deadlift, which can be helpful for addressing weaknesses in this area.
Block pulls are a great way to improve your deadlift strength and technique. They can also help you to build muscle mass in your back (including erector spinae), glutes, and hamstrings. If you are looking to improve your deadlift, block pulls are a great exercise to add to your routine.
